Awash challenge - push the balls back!

Postby retro on Wed Jul 23, 2008 1:46 am

I was trying to make a bulldozer powerful enough to push the balls in Awash back up the hill and came up with this idea.

Rules:
- your design must complete the level
- your score is the number of balls that end up falling off the right hand ledge just past the goal before the level is completed

The max score would be all the balls or 30.

Here's my first working bulldozer which scores 22.

Some very small tweaks and I've managed 24:

Here's a perfect 30!

And it's pretty speedy too!

That was really hard. I had to add a level to keep the big one from going over the top and a couple agitators to keep things moving, and a second scoop freeswinging to keep from rolling over the tops of small ones at the top.

Wow two nice bulldozers!

Haven't managed to clear 30 myself with a bulldozer design.

Slow, but simple. Use the weight of the balls for traction...
